A Life Changing Experience
It feels great to be ambassador to your country and to have your voice heard by the world. It also feels amazing to have the courage to stand in front of high-status people and speak from the heart.

The more life experiences you go through, the more fingerprints you will be able to leave in people’s minds. We try our best to not forget some of the experiences we had because of the achievements and good memories associated with them.
My travelling journeys started when I was a freshman; I participated in many events, competitions, workshops and different training sessions. However, the most unforgettable and influential experience I had is the “Arab Media Leaders Programme”. It was organized by the Arab Youth Centre which works on pioneer initiatives led by Arab youth in the UAE.
We met many decision makers, influencers, pioneers and public figures from all over the world who contributed to the development of modern media. We also had the chance to talk to great media organizations and associations’ representatives such as Reuters, BBC, MBC, Bloomberg, CNN and Sky news and learned more about their work.
One of the most significant things in that experience was meeting one hundred elite young men and women who were Arab Media pioneers with rich cultural backgrounds.
One hundred persons from all over the world were trying to present their best in their field in that programme on October, 2018.
Proudly, I am now one of the Arab Youth Centre pioneers in the UAE, and I thank all of the great people I have met there as they left great memories in my mind.
